ANSWERED Virus found in EvernoteTray.exe

Recommended Posts

Today I installed the latest update and my local AV discovered the following "EvernoteTray.exe, Graftor.124246 Virus".

 

Can you please let me know if you are aware of this? I updated from within my desktop program on Windows.

Same here.

"HitmanPro" is reporting a virus in EvernoteTray.exe after upgrading today to newest build.

Is this real ?

I flagged your posts for administration to look at

Thanks, I submitted a support ticket.

By now, that should be a well known issue for Support and/or the Security Team.

No response so far from EN.

Is anybody else having this virus warning?

Still no response from anybody at EN.

Hey, this is a serious issue with potentially harming thousands of users around the world.

Very disappointing. Nobody from EN looking into this and recommending a remedy?

I installed this update, and received no antivirus notification. I use the stock Windows Defender, which seems to be pretty good these days. I'm guessing false positive, but it would be good to hear that from the Evernote folks.

Yes I guess it's a false positive too, but I've been updating the app on this PC since April and it's been ok to date.

 

Let's see if EN say anything.

@Mark BarefootThanks for the reports. We're investigating this now and will follow up ASAP with more information. Similar cases in the past have proven to be false positives. I'll post updates here as I receive them. Thanks again.

Hi Austin,

thanks for the info.

I can confirm this as I was able to check with Kaspersky and they came to the same conclusion.

False positive !!

 

Cheers

Wern
